Reminder after "The anger that breaks a man down into boys" by Cesar Vallejo
Updated: Nov 7, 2019
The anger that breaks women down into girls
That breaks girls down into equals
Reminds us that we are the same.
The anger that pushes mothers into servitude
That turns servitude into slavery
Reminds us who it is that we work for.
The anger that turns executives into pantsuits
That turns professionalism into minimalism
Reminds us who build these companies.
The anger that turns Jane Doe into a victim
That turns the victim into “she shouldn’t have worn that”
Reminds us who, in fact, the inferior are.
The anger that turns your body into their business
That turns their business out of your hands
Reminds us who needs to lead.
And the anger that that turns your scream into a muffled sound
That turns the muffled sound into silence
Will remind you to let your actions speak.
